The only love I know in my heart is this absent love
Left behind or up ahead, some place I'm always thinking of
The only time I know in my head is this empty time
That takes months to turn around into something that I'll leave behind

The only peace I've had in my life is this peace of mind
And while it's there when I close my eyes it leaves me every night
The only song I sing to pass the time is this lonely song
And I'll sing it well even if no one catches on

So who placed your name on the tip of my tongue
Who put your wind in the back of my lungs
Who gave my heart when it should've been enough
So be brave, I would've been if it wasn't for love

I had a vision of a train that night in the station when we met in Berlin
And I cried in my sleep at the thought that it'd take me away from you again
Now the only fear I have left in my chest is this fear of you
And the thought that someday soon maybe you'd fear me too

So who placed your name on the tip of my tongue
Who put your wind in the back of my lungs
Who gave my heart when it should've been enough
So be brave, I would've been if it wasn't for love
